Our Verdict
An incredibly powerful short film with high quality production standards and surprisingly deep narrative. Your first instinct is to laugh when you first catch sight of the gangly kid who is slightly too old for the costume he’s wearing, but then you realise his plight you can’t help but feel for him. He goes out dressed as his favorite video game character in search of adventure but the loneliness and boredom of the real world disappoints him. The house he sneaks into at the end isn’t Dr. Robotnik’s, it’s his own. He’s spent a lifetime looking for adventure and tired of his lonely existence he decides to end it using the cables of the video game consoles he spent so much time on. A remarkable film that says so much during its wordless 6 minute playtime.
